Dispose of leftover cooking oil and grease (and help our water system stay clog-free) by taking advantage of the City’s free, temporary oil/grease drop-off site Nov. 29-Dec. 8 at 551 N. Plano Rd., near the southwest corner of Plano Road and Columbia Drive. Bring cooled oil/grease in rigid plastic containers with screw-top lids (the container the oil came in may work) and simply drive up, drop the container(s) in the collection bin and drive off. (DO NOT POUR oil/grease out.) The site will be open 24 hours a day.

The City partners with Texas-based American BioSource to collect the oil/grease, which is recycled into bio fuels.
